Then play it again 3 times singing "Yeee-ooo-ooo" ( you know what I mean :) )

( I play it strumming 8 times each chord )
( In every D Dsus2 part, alternate a few times between the two chords )

Chords used:

  A          002220           C#m7       042100
  D          x00232           Dsus2      x00230
  Bm7/11/nr  004230           B7/11/nr   004240   ( nr = NOROOT )
  F/A        x03211           Dm6        x00201
  Esus4      002200           Fmaj7      033210
  G6         320000           E          022100
  E?         033200           E??        044300
  E+11       012100

  The names of the chords might not be completely correct, but then again,
they're not completely wrong either :)
  Have fun!

I play it slightly different.  Opening riff is the same but riff into verse I us
E:
E -----------------
B -----------------
G -------5-7-------
D ---7-7-----------   (or could use 2 2; 0 2 up a string)
A -----------------
E -----------------

For the verses I use the riff:
               PM........|   PM...........|
--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------
----2-----2----4-4-4-4-2-----4---4-4-4-4-2--
--------------------------------------------
--0-----4-----------------------------------
--------------------------------------------

2nd part of verse

-------------------------
-------------------------
--6-6---7-7---8-8---7-7--
--7-7---7-7---7-7---7-7--  repeat
--0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0--
-------------------------

3rd part of verse
  PM.....|    PM..........|    PM..|
-------------------------------------
----------5-5--------------5-5-------
------4-4-----4-4------3-3-----3-3---
--0-0--------------0-0---------------  repeat

 lightly palm muted
-----------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------
----2---2-2------2---2-2------4---4-4------2---2-2---
--2---2-----2-/3---3-----3-/5---5-----5-/3---3-----3-

--2---2-----2--2---2-----2--2---2-----2--2----7-7-----||
------------------------------------------------------||
------------------------------------------------------||


I usually just bend 17 on the B string followed by sliding
the pick up and down the A and D strings for the solo break
back into the intro riff.

There is an extra 999/777 riff before the final chorus.

The outro riff I just play the chorus chords as full chords
----------------------------------
----------------------------------
--2---------2---------4---------2-
--2---------3---------5---------3-  repeat and fade
--0---------0---------0---------0-
----------------------------------

This was from memory so I might have screwed a couple of
numbers up.  Hope this helps.
